Happy Mother’s Day

5/26/20 Honorable Mention at CASology!

Hi everyone! It’s Fri-YAY – hope you have a wonderful weekend planned and you continue to stay safe and well! I’m playing in The Outlawz Challenges again and have popped in this morning to share a card that I’m entering into the Festive Fridays Challenge where our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps. The themes to choose from are Christmas, Birthday, Mother’s Day and Sympathy, so this Mother’s Day card is perfect for this challenge!


I won a Clearly Besotted gift card several weeks back and purchased several clear stamp sets, and this is one of them. First time using it and I love it! I stamped the image in black and then again in Versamark and then heat embossed in clear – a trick I learned years ago to give virtually any color of heat embossing! I colored the image with Nuvo alcohol markers, stamped the Mother’s Day sentiment and layered the panel on purple cardstock. I finished the front with some Crystal Drops.


I kept the inside simple to go with the CAS design on the front – stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the purple cardstock.


One more peek… I absolutely love how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
